After injuring his hamstring early on in camp, Clay Buchholz hadn't made a start in any of the spring training games to date for the Red Sox. But with him being healthy and a longer spring because of the WBC, barring any setbacks, he should be on track to start the season. Buchholz made his spring debut on Saturday in a 2-1 win over the Minnesota Twins to a 1-0 lead in the Mayor's Cup. He went 1 1/3 innings and allowed just one hit while walking two and striking out two. For his first time out, that's not too bad and he'll be able to work on what wrong in his side sessions before his next start. The Red Sox will be missing two more of there players as Shane Victorino has left for Team USA camp while Alfredo Aceves has left for Mexico's camp. Prospect Xander Bogaerts is already gone as he is playing for the Netherlands. His Netherlands team is 1-1 and he has no hits so far in five at-bats. He has walked twice and scored a run. Today, the Red Sox will welcome their most hated rival the New York Yankees to JetBlue Park at Fenway South. First pitch is scheduled for 1:35 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Yankees television market you can catch the game on YES. And if you miss the game, the MLB Network will have a replay at 4 p.m. You can listen to the game on WEEI in the Boston area. If you have the MLB At-Bat app or a RSN membership, you'll be able to listen to the game using the GameDay audio feature.
